Youth rec league

Who can participate in these leagues?

This program is designed for kids ages 4 - 12.  Leagues will be divided by age and skill level.  Transfers between leagues may be made on a case by case basis, based on size and ability. 

USA Hockey Registration is required.

What is it?

This league offers a "fun-based, non-competitive approach" to learning the basics of hockey.  The emphasis will be on an introduction to, and the development of, playing hockey in a team environment.

This is a 12 session hockey program to include 4 practices and 8 games.  

All games will be non-checking, full equipment is required and available in our Pro Shop. 

When is it?

Depending on the season, the Rec program usually takes place at either 10:00 or 11:00 on Saturday mornings.  Refer to the requested season's specific flyer for the final determination of times.


What do I need to participate?

Full hockey gear is needed to participate in this program. Good news though! We have some available to rent / use or purchase while you participate in our programs.  We know that the thought of having to purchase gear just to try a new sport can be discouraging so we keep a stock of gear to help to suit you up and get the kids moving. 

Youth new to the program, ages 4-8, will receive a set of brand new equipment (including skates), as part of the Washington Capitals Learn to Play Initiative.  The equipment is yours to keep.  (Rental equipment is available for youth ages 9-12.)
